>Suletta>Miorine>Guel>Elan>ShaddiqDo they just throw darts at a board with letters to decide Gundam character names?
>>20932397nonsensical names have been tradition since 79
Tomino’s autistic antics meant everyone had queer names in the original. It’s just been part and parcel since then
>>20932407Wasn't the rationale for the weird names being the staff was trying to fuck with the executives until they realized the suits don't read or watch the shit they are making?
>>20932471Nah it was just a ‘let’s choose an exotic name’ sort of deal. He specially chose the name Amuro because it sounded foreign and not something people would recognise
We're going to get threads like this for a year huh...
>>20932397Those names are still pretty tame compared to peak Tomino names like Jamitov Hymen or Shot Weapon.
>>20932479There's an image showing an interview where he says some of the names (I think gelgoog was one of them) was due to him realizing none of the executives were paying any attention, but I'm pretty sure that only started later, so some names are probably meant to be exotic and other later ones are because no one cared.
>>20932397Yes they do actually
>>20932484Every Gundam series is somebody's first series so yes
there is a storied history of witches with names that end in -tta
>>20932523the issue is who that "somebody" is
>>20932397these names are an insult to Tomino
>>20932500It was like that with the designs too. Sponsor knew they couldn’t sell enemy kits so they just told them to do what they wanted
>>20932397 >Otome Gundam Anime EdtionDidn't a Gundam mobile game just get an anime recently with a female MC? Again?
>woah this setting many eons into the future/past has weird names>why can't they be called john and pedro like us>those wacky japs are autistic/on drugs xD
>>20932569people were still called John and Michael in the 15th century
>>20932531Once her space daughter is at least as gay as she was, everything will be fine
I LOVE PP HEAD
>>20932569The vast majority of names that are used have been around for centuries. Last names being the only thing seeing any stark change.
>>20932620World changed more in last 100 years than in previous 2000.
>>20932397why the hell do they look like yugioh duelists?
>>20932484Won't be as bad as IBO. It'll be much worse
>>20932397How new are you? You should be glad none of the names are fucking genital references.
>>20932500>but I'm pretty sure that only started laterChar is one of those names lmao, Tomino pitched it as SHA like the sound of swiftness and was surprised it was accepted after that he kept doing itDamn ya'll dummies just pull shit out of your asses instead of doing a quick search
>>20932552Gundam Breaker III and Gundam Breaker Mobile have male MCs.
>>20932552If you mean UC Engage, no, they're just cutscenes from the game of its main story. They're also doing newly-animated cutscenes from MSG, 0083, and Moon Gundam within it.
>>20932552Battlogue did, I think. Though none of the characters really had much, well, character in it. It's just good old big robot fun.
>>20933017Frankly I'm glad it went this way, I like the weird names
>>20932397Alright which one of these are guys and which ones are girls. I'm assuming Shaddiq is a dude because he has pecs even if he looks like a gyaru woman
>>20933249The first two on the upper left are girls, the rest are guys.
>>20933249For me they are all girls until proven wrong.
>>20933258Have you read the descriptions on the official website that states their gender?
>>20932397stupid /a/ tourist
>>20932397Guel and Elan are the only weird ones to me. The rest are pretty normal names elsewhere.
>>20933258These 3 are guys. You can see the pronouns on the English site:https://en.gundam.info/about-gundam/series-pages/witch/character/3/ https://en.gundam.info/about-gundam/series-pages/witch/character/4/https://en.gundam.info/about-gundam/series-pages/witch/character/5/
>>20933264>>20933277I still think they are girls.
>>20933410why would he ask my favorite character if they don't watch the show?
>>20932486Amandara Kamandara never ceases to make me chuckle.
>>20933294You have brain problems
>>2093327Which one's the love interest?
>>20932397>>Miorine>>Guel>>Elansound very western, derived from welsh or french>>Shaddiqvery middle eastern for the brown boy>>>>>SulettaSLUTELLA LOL
>>20933527This guy is interested in her.
>>20933137it does make it feel more futuristic, in a way. i used to think it was deliberate, to show how society and language have shifted
>>20933294It's <current year> anon. The can be whatever gender you want, regardless of chromosomes.
>>20933584Wow, this dude looks like faggy fag. I guess they gotta keep the fujo's happy though.
>>20933527>>20933584I'm 100% sure MC will have a childhood friend who is interested in her. He will most likely die tho
>>20933584He's interested in her because he's a witch hunter looking for his next mark
>>20933584>guyI have my doubts.
The hg ariel is sexy as fuck and i can't wait to buy it
>>20932397We used to do our own thing with it back in the day, when Captchas were wildly different.
>>20933618Fujos like homosexual romance you idiot. Yumejoshi are the ones that like self inserting hetero shit.
This is a pretty good staff list for a new AUBandai must be serious for Reiwa's 1st AU Gundam
>>20933584Is this guy the obligatory Char clone
>>20932471>>20932479>>20932500>>20933017source is this interview (which is very interesting in general if you're a Tomino fan): https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=h_hjo_6vDj8he also mentions Amuro being a name he actually really liked and picked with care, that almost was rejected because producers thought it wasn't "heroic enough", and that Char (SHA) was a troll meme name he hates.
>>20932397Those are very Tomino names. Suletta is an easy G-reco carryover, I’m sure.
>Guel Jeturk>Guel Jet>Fuel JetThat can't be right, can it?
>>20934527MS FUEL CAN'T MELT COLONY WALLS
>>20933584It's in his profile that he's interested in her but I'd bet money all the boys will be interested in her eventuallyHe does pilot the only other named Gundam though
>>20932471You're thinking about the Zeon suit names, not character names.
>>20934573Character names too, including Char.
>>20934563>all the boys will be interested in her eventuallyReverse Harem?!
>>20934563I wonder what's the significance of the Gundam name in AS. Kinda thought it's just a MS lineage since Aerial and Lfrith looks similar enough, but Pharact doesn't seem to share any design elements except for the head piece with those distinctive lines.
>>20934540>ikeman wants to dick girl>anon: "goddamn fujo pandering"lmao
When are we getting Suq Madiq and Munchma Quchi?
>>20934436Do they just piece together the shredded paper filled with names rejected by Tomino?
>>20935092>american attempts to be comedic
>>20934563I mean hey, skilled femme-pilots are a valid fetish, so I can't blame him...
>>20934242The Sound Designer they chose is the guy from IBO and Aldnoah Zero, and those shows sounded beautiful.The director of photography surprised me though.I thought it was gonna be Kentaro Waki.If he's not working on this show then I guess he must still be tied up with Hathaway.
>>20935183Kentaro Waki wants to make a jump to director. He did the Girls Frontline OP. Either way, it's Kentaro Waki Jr., they worked together on Narrative and Alicization.
Twitter stalker here, I really think this is Studio 1. I'm going through the Twitter accounts of Studio 1 animators (Thunderbolt, Hathaway) with an actual Twitter account like Seiichi Nakatani and Manabi Katayama and they retweeted the announcement/staff reveal.https://twitter.com/try_shelhttps://twitter.com/manabu_katayama
>>20935502Would that still really matter now that all of Sunrise is in one building?
>>20936316Yes, because instead of separate buildings the studios are just offices in a building. The studios are teams, just like how Capcom has multiple divisions in the same building even thought they're separate groups.
>>20936323Do you think the animators have sex with each other to relieve their stress during their graveyard shifts?
the mc is cute, can't wait to see her get raped by fat ugly bastards with huge smegma-rotten cocks on doujins
>>20936331Jewish hands typed this.
>>20933584Very brave and stunning Mercurian fashion. We have a lot to learn from them.
>>20934527>Rey Za BarrelMaybe.
>>20936757That guy is not a Mercurian.
>>20932397Will Elan be the Lelouch/L-Elf type character? He looks like the part and his name does kind of starts with "L".
>>20932397>MS piloting school>characters come from different parts of the solar system each piloting a suit made on their respective hommeworld, all looking wildly different Guys, are we getting G Gundam 2.0?Also give bets who will end up as this series' char clone come S2
>>20936922>Guys, are we getting G Gundam 2.0?Yes.>char cloneIn pic, on the left.
>>20932883Char Aznable is just Charles Aznavour processed from French via Japanese; it's way less crazy than later Gundam names like Cancer Kafka
>>20936326Too overworked, too tired and too poor a diet to have libido.
https://mantan-web.jp/article/20220617dog00m200077000c.html>小形尚弘プロデューサーThe producer for Witch of Mercury is Naohiro Ogata from Studio 1. He has produced every UC or UC-derivate work since Unicorn, including G-Reco and Hathway. This is his first actual AU Gundam production.
>>20937806>IBO producer was yeeted to Beyond/Kyoukai Senki
>>20932397Back in my day we used captcha to make up Gundam character names
>>20936637>japanese people are jewishYou know too much, goyjin
Naohiro Ogata comments:>Not UC, it's a new timeline. >Those that paid attention to the first teaser poster in comparison to the second will notice that Suletta's outfit changed color to white. There is a reason for that, but he can't say more in detail until more details about the plot are revealed.>He hopes to build up on the Ad Stella timeline with Witch from Mercury as a catalyst for its expansion.>The staff has a mix of new people and veterans for the franchise and their goal is to create something that feels new but that's very Gundam. https://www.cinematoday.jp/news/N0130690https://mantan-web.jp/article/20220617dog00m200077000c.htmlhttps://news.yahoo.co.jp/articles/e68bdb7efa9389ac92ee5948a89dc7085f822824

>>20938038Wait I've got more.>Anne El Voa>Muce Al Grote>Furra Finity>Tom Cuck
>>20932397Elan is a girl in disguisehas to be.
>>20938097You're talking as if prettyboy main characters is something new to gundam
>>20938108literally her name is Elana but without the end aits like finding out Alucard is Dracula backward
>>20938118Did Loran or Tieria turn out to be girls for real?
>>20937806>>20938016G-Witch is in good hands.
>I still wish these two would have an intimate relationship.>It's not the same as romantic feelings, but in Iron-Blooded Orphans, there was a depiction of Kudelia and Atra being in a de facto marriage and keeping Mikazuki's life alive....... I think we can expect yuri in today's Gundam.The Japanese fanbase is increasingly speaking out on this, but will Sunrise deliver?
>>20936927...did they blackwash the redhead?
>>20938191look at her skin color. Now look at the OP. Compare and contrast
>>20938182There are more people in the Japanese fanbase comparing it to FE:Three Houses and otome games in general. Go back to being mad about Cross Ange.
>>20938192You might want to get your eyes checked out, /pol/anon. There's no visually discernable difference in skin tone between the two.
>>20938182>>20938207For now most of the fan artist the drawing are clout chaser moebuta's.Thats why they just drawing headcanon.
>>20938234>the drawing*That currently drawing
>>20938232It's you who need a check-up since you can't follow the post quotes. >>20936927
>>20938232Yup, same color
>>20933584This kills the yurifag
>>20933597>i used to think it was deliberate, to show how society and language have shiftedA lot of old names back then are still used now. Unless radical new states and cultures form there won't be much change since new cultures still take on the naming styles and sources from their constituent cultures, mostly the most "dominant" or prestigious ones.
>>20937806>>20938016It's Studio 1 then? Is Hathaway 2 and that new City Hunter movie going to get shafted?
>>20938500Studio 1 was working on G-reco and Hathaway at the same time. G-Reco wrapped up which means a bunch of that staff is probably on G-Witch plus new staff too.The teaser already resembled the G-Reco animation, just with a crisper artstyle instead of the pseudo pencil look.
>>20938500Hathaway isn't in production and won't be in production for another whole year. The character designer/chief AD is working in Initial D.
>>20938557It's in pre-production just not being animated/dubbed/etc
>>20938562That's why I said production, not pre-production. Either way, they can't start the animation without Onda so even if a bunch of the animators working on Witch are from Hathaway it doesn't really matter.
>>20932407Everyone was named after (You)?
I wanted a light skinned redhead girl as the main character. There isn't a whole lot of them in anime.
>>20938619Izetta? The MC is just tanned because she lives next to the sun.
>>20938626The show has two pale characters that seem very important so what the fuck are you talking about.
>>20934310We'll see. After all, Miorine is basically written as mission control and Char clones not piloting a mobile suit are a rarity.
>>20938654>White characters>Very importantHmm
Will G-Witch get Tomino's blessing?>female MC>his protege Okouchi writing>G-Reco producer, art director, and art designers>Ippei Gyobou mecha
>>20938619>light skinned redhead girl>There isn't a whole lot of themThere's an entire factory of Puru clones, a certain Zabi and a dozen others for you to fap to already in this franchise alone>>20938626>white skins>AryanSo they'll die in disgrace for retarded ideologies and beliefs like they have since 0079
>>20937806G-Reco is an AU though.
>>20938740G-Reco is a sequel to both the UC timeline and Turn A.
>>20938720Depends if either Suletta or Miorine pass the lick thest
>>20938728Go home feddie.
G Reco girls are the cutest. Mercury will be moe and save Gendum.
>>20932500Well /m/, what would the goog be called if the editing staff cared?
>>20932397Should I skip the new Gundam show if I am a sexist?
>>20939554Hope we get a repeat of this scene, and maybe a little more
>>20939575I wonder if Japan also had dumb memes about that scene since the movie changed it so that the audience could see what they were talking about.
>>20939570It's better if you skip living altogether
>>20938910but at what cost
Is G-Witch's plot really about>CORPORATIONS ARE... LE BAD?That would be really ironic coming from Bandai fucking Namco
>>20934683I'd have to wager that they're are pretty rare in AS, going by how only one of the branch heirs has a Gundam.Maybe they've got something special like high specs or specific materials/techniques used in construction.
>>20939570no you should watch it and post your opinions on every thread to make this >>20940248 guy's life worse
>>20940971It's pretty common in cyberpunk-ish stories anyway.
>>20940971This is more or less why You-Know-What 2077 deserves to be considered a pastiche
>>20940971Are you really making up excuses to be angry about this show when we know next to nothing about it?
>>20940971Let's hope it's more like 0079 where it's more like an assumed value (war is bad/unchecked capitalism is bad) it expects you to at least recognise so you can engage with the real meat of the show. Or maybe it'll be completely agnostic or even supportive lol. Just be interesting.
>>20940971I mean, the show is not out yet, we only know it has corporations and an academy.For all we know, G-Witch could very well be the most blantant pro-corporation pro-capitalism Gundam to date.
>>20941474>the most blantant pro-corporation pro-capitalism Gundam to dateThat would be the entire Build series
>>20941465To be fair, the short story that the series gets its name from is basically about Wine corporations destroying an independence movement so they can keep a wine monopoly to fuel the Earth trade without dealing with an independent government on Mercury while using various mobs as soldiers before the Earth fleet attacks.
>>20941558Wasn’t the Earth government in bed with the corporations too though?
>>20940971they already erected a 1:1 freedom gundam statue in Tiananmen square right before they released their new mecha IP where japan gets to role play a war-torn nation. we're way past irony with Bandai
>>20941627Sasuga, Bandai. Pulling their own "wow, cool robot" move on the Chinks.
>>20941615Not the government itself. It was just corporations tied to the wine trade with some nebulous connections to government and military officials. The story opens with the Earth government granting Mercury more autonomy.The wine corporations and the mafia are trying to stop the Mercury Patriot movement and that's how the main character(dude from mars) gets brought to Mercury to meet with the Red Witch to set up a hit on the independence movement leader before she gets abducted and he starts investigating that leading to all the gun fights, venus hitmen, mafia shoot outs, etc.I think it's funny though that Suletta is a red head from mercury and her Gundam also boots up with red lights first while the character bio describes her spirit as a scarlet glow.Also funny that the guy that's in the only other Gundam so far and either interested in her or a point of interest for her is named after the asteroid between mars and jupiter.
>>20941642So basically you're saying the Suletta is an autistic killing machine that will be used by interplanetary corporations to kill her own people yearning for freedom or whatever. Sounds sorta familiar.
>>20941660No? Red Witch was a mob lady posing as a lounge singer.The guy from mars was the super autistic space marine kill-em-all machine. Also Irish for some reason.
I sincerely hope the show is good but if it's bad I hope it's a complete trainwreck and not just "kind of bad"
>>20941474>G-Witch could very well be the most blantant pro-corporation pro-capitalism Gundam to dateNo evidence to point to this
I know it doesn't really matter and may actually be a detriment to production, but I wonder which musical artists they'll use for the OP/ED and inserts.
>>20933584>cuter than the main girl Womenfags btfo once again. Menchads won
>>20941673Probably someone "hot" right now like King Gnu or Uta or Kenshi Yonezu or Eve.
>>20941691>King GnuThey don't do anisongs.>Kenshi YonezuWho?>EveMaybe.
>>20941673Hiroko Moriguchi lol no
>>20941692>They don't do anisongs.King Gnu did the theme song for the Jujutsu Kaisen movie and Jujutsu Kaisen rerun is keeping Nichigo warm for Witch of Mercury.>Who?The guy that did the song for the Ultraman movie. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Zhx1n6uvgUE
>>20941695Shit, you're right. They also did a song for Ousama Ranking. Guess, I'm out of the loop.
>>20932397>Make MC a girl>Ugliest of the castMany such cases.
>>20941706>UgliestShe's the cutest tanuki
>>20932397This gay Darling in The Franxx aids can suck my taint
>>20941706She is cute, but I think they made her look a bit frumpy for a timeskip glow-up. Like Simon in Gurren Lagann.
>>20941727Amuro was never exactly a stunner in 0079.
>>20941719She’s a red panda and the white haired girl is a jellyfish
>>20941755Yes, but he became sexy by Zeta.
>>20941755He’s pretty stylin in zeta tho
>>20941755That's why I mentioned a timeskip. Every AU Gundam since 00 has had a timeskip.
>>20941812You're using a very loose definition of time skip if you're saying everry AU has had a timeskip.
>>20941706If she's not a plain jane that can be fixed then she's not really an otome protagonist.
>>2094182100 had a 5 year timeskip. Age had 2 15 year timeskips. IBO had a 3 year timeskip.
>>20941827Age was also conceptualized as a multi generational 100 year war and switched out their entire casts each time.OO also had multiple seasons with different conflicts and stories in each section from 1, to 2, to the movie.Build didn't timeskip in their shows and switched out casts entirely between seasons.IBO is the only show that actually did a full on time skip in its show without breaking it between seasons, series, or casts.The way you're using time skip you might as well say every single UC entry is a time skip.
>>20941844If Witch is any longer than 25 episodes it's going to be the same as 00 and IBO and be split in 2 "seasons."
>>20941847OO was literally announced as a season 2 in Japan, not a split cour. IBO was split cours.You watch anime, you should know how this works. That's why Slime wasn't seasons 1, 2, 3, and 4 - just seasons 1 and 2.
>>20941757Some are saying she's a white fox
It'll have a timeskip because Three Houses does
>>20941876The Japanese think everything is a fox, that’s like half of all their folklore
>>20941757>the hair>second on the character list>daddy issuesWill she go undercover as Quadra Fallous?Also, I love that her ahoge goes off the character sheet on the website.
>>20942066Clearly Quattru Paneesu
>>20941952They're also completely wrong. She's clearly a Dutch painter with hyper tension.
>>20932397>SulettaI can see the memes already.
>>20932397Miorine‘s pretty cute.
>>20942066Another white haired Char Clone too after Harry Ord, Zeheart and Captain Mask
>>20942090I too can see it, but I figured they based it off of Soletta which is just a solar radiation magnifier concept. It would make sense for her to be named after a solar mirror concept given that she's from Mercury.
>>20942093She's obviously a Sayla clone from the replacement gags of her being Char but Tem Ray is their dad on top of running Anaheim.
>>20942102She actually is from Mercury, right? It’s not just her last name?
>>20942066Actually>Red Comet [akai suisei]>redhead with a scarlet spirit>suisei no majoHow does the MC look in sunglasses?
>>20942128Yeah, she is from Mercury, which is supposed to be "middle of nowhere" in the setting.
>>20942128Due to internal politics, she's actually the Queen of Mercury, thus qualifying as royalty and allowed to go to the academy.
>>20942209>>20942245Okay, so it’s both? Suletta of House Mercury, the ruling house of the planet Mercury. And a noble of bumfuck nowhere is still a noble, therefore etc. Something like that?
>>20942276It's all still headcanon at this point
This is the extent of canon we have so far
>>20942295Ha, that’s fucking nothing. Not even clear what our heroine’s standing is. Nice that she’s a second year, though, dodges some of the more obnoxious school tropes.
>>20942302>Not even clear what our heroine’s standing isComparing her uniform to everyone else's, outside of the obvious colour difference, you could tell that she's of higher rank than the rest (collar, logo, extra embroidery, etc.). Whether this is because of social rank, or perhaps due to piloting skill or whatever qualifies her as a "witch", we'll have to see.
>>20942305The producer said that there is a reason she had the normal uniform in the first key visual and teaser and a white uniform in the new reveal.
>>20942336She probably will earn a title in the first episode or something.
>>20932838People fought with spears and swords for thousands of years. In 100 we got planes, cars, rockets, phones, internet, space probes and are about to start colonizing another planet.
>>20933277I can see middle being a girl pretending to be a guy.
>>20938455Male side character means absolutely nothing.
>>20942336Yeah, they probably don’t discover she’s a princess for a little bit
>>20942352We will see, but that's harder to do these days because male characters get female VAs very unfrequently since producers cast male VAs to get fangirls.
>>20942346>People fought with spears and swords for thousands of years. That didn't suddenly change in 1920, anon.>In 100 we got planesKinda, but not really. First working planes were in the late 1800s. First confirmed to carry a human successfully was in 1903.>carsNo>rocketsNo>phonesNo>internetYes>space probesYes>and are about to start colonizing another planet.LMAO not even fucking close, anon. Neither artificial space habitats nor living on other planetary bodies are in the cards for a very, very long time.
>>20936953Tomino literally fucking says it's SHA like the sound of the wind in an interview.
>>20942336inb4 she just wanted to go to school like normal elite children do and someone blabs about her status in a way administration can't ignore, ruining everything.
>>20942295One thing missing is that Suletta and the three boys are in the piloting department, while Miorine is in the management strategy department.Probably so that our heroine has any reason to interact with the boys at all, and so that she isn't interacting with Miorine all of the time as well.
>>20932397I am a sexist. Should I skip the next Gundam anime?
>>20942497I'm probably pointing out the obvious but I guess this means that Miorine will eventually get her own ship to command
>>20942128Yes, which might mean the Ceres guy is from the asteroid belt
>>20942522I don't know, you might miss the destruction of everything the moeblob cares.
So are they copying stuff from Ecole du Ciel because a few of these details sound very familiar?
>>20941876Looking at her now, I'm wondering if her hair is supposed to resemble a swans wing or something.
>>20942613You act like anyone at Bandai and Sunrise even knows Ecole du Ciel exists. This shit is 100% some guy decided to combine a favorite sci-fi pulp novel with FE Three Houses.
>>20942574The school is basically run by this universe version of Anaheim, and she's the daughter of the guy that runs not-Anaheim. Management strategy department could literally just be business 101.Every detail so far has just been a bunch of corporations that work for a bigger corporation that has a monopoly on system development for mobile suits.
>>20942809I don't understand. Did three houses invent school war settings?
>>20942845Reminds me of the Hexa
>>20942522No because you’ll miss out on all the yaoi
>>20942845>LfrithHow are you supposed to pronounce that

>>20932500There's a singer called Charles Aznavour, y'knowhttps://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Charles_Aznavour
>>20942849 gundamfags are vedditors, he probably didn't even play it
I can actually see a subplot about the school being just a front to find NewTypes (or whatever the equivalent is in AS) like in Ecole du Ciel.
Is this an AU or a weird UC spinoff?
>>20943469AUThe timeline is named A.S. (Ad Stella) and is set in the year 122
>>20943473Mind you, year 122 means nothing since AS could start 100 years from now or even further into the future.
What kind of personally should she have?
>>20944388Go back to twitter.
>>20944412>Go back to twitter.Exactly.
>>20942849You don't understand why Bandai and Sunrise would copy something popular in Japan when making a product for the Japanese market? Next you'll say all the isekai novels being the same are just a massive coincidence.
>>20944388>guessing a personality when they already said what her personality is
>>20933277i thought the middle was a girlfucking almost fapped to it
>>20944452Why did you stop
>>20944434You didn't answer the question though. What similarities does witch from mercury have with three houses?
>>20940248Well that's very rude and uncalled for.>>20941029Maybe I should.
>>20944388>Suletta is timid and somewhat lacks communications skills.
>>20944515It’s about a mysterious backwater person with odd powers getting accepted to an elite school for noble heirs that trains them in combat where they meet a buff dude with anger issues, an mysterious schemer who’s interested in them, and a friendly brown guy
>>20944388It’s either A or B
>>20944702Saved by the Bell?
>>20944515So you're saying is absolutely just a coincidence that Three Houses blew up in Japan and the next Gundam revolves around a backwater girl going to a war school where the main characters are all heirs of the system control company and three opposing companies while Japanese twitter straight up calls it Gundam Three Houses?I bet you think Zyouger using minecraft videogame block mechs was a coincidence too even though minecraft was the biggest selling game in Japan at the time challenged only by Splatoon.
>>20944759>Japanese twitter straight up calls it Gundam Three Houses?Wait, really?
>>20944560Sure, but that doesn't say how she will be once she's in the mech
>>20944931I have a feeling that after the School falls apart and stage an all-out war between the three companies, Suletta will slowly become battle-hardened and fight to restore the Beneritt Group with Mio by her side and stopping the various leaders by force. If there's anyone among the best three in the third-years you want to see side with Suletta, who is the best choice?
>>20944970Elan will the most popular for sure. Traditional bishounen, Gundam pilot, has an interest in Suletta.
>>20945305Being bishounen doesn't guarantee popularity in Gundam fanbase anymore. It's about how much of a meme you can generate (Orga and Flit)
>>20945308Are the Orga memes basically the Japanese way of expressing dissatisfaction with IBO?
>>20942295so, Suletta is a bastard
>>20945583Of the House of Mercury? Or Miorine's half-sister?
>>20945583No? They are just both second year students (as far as we know)
>>20945657real talk, if this has no yuri in it then it will be the worst series since Destiny
>>20945665if yuritards say it sucks then i'll pretend to like it
>>20945714So if yuriknights pretend to hate it, they'll bait you into watching it
>>20945599>>20945648well the image may imply that she is adopted by the Rembran house
>All about nobility wankeryThere better be incest.
>Gundam Mercury Witch, I wonder if this could be an 'incompetent Nana' type story where Suletta is an agent sent by Mercury with a secret mission.>A tanuki like vixen who plays the part of a harmless country bumpkin, but secretly incites conflict between the various corporations...I hope Sunrise really do pull something like this with her
If this is Gundam Three Houses, then who’s who? Who’s our Edelgard, Dimitri, Rhea? Do we have a Byleth? God damn, I hope not.
>>20946284See, I think there is more to Suletta than simply being shy and cute, but mostly that she will have a completely different personality when piloting or fighting. I do think that she will probably have ulterior motives for going to the school. Maybe something related to Mercury as a planet.
there will be a scene in which the school is attacked by actual terrorists and the other students don't know what to do because they have no combat experience but suletta will remain stone cold and murder the terrorists.
>>20946284A tanuki can't be a vixen.
>>20944764They've been calling it three houses ever since the three company shit got revealed especially with two of them being eagle and lion.
>>20946328Edelgard is white hair girl or the guy with the black Gundam, Dimitri is the guy with the pink grunt, Rhea is white hair girl’s dad, and Suletta is Byleth
I hope this anime is sexist.
>>20946697So do I.
>>20946697it will be... against man
Am I the only one getting Turn A vibes from this?
Am I the only one getting turned on from this?
>>20946284That sounds coolOne thing we can be sure of is her autism
>>20946557Its worth noting Amuro was also 'shy and cute' but also kind of a sleaze.
>>20942276My guess is that she didn't have a last name when she first joined the school, so the staff gave her the last name "Mercury" when she signed up since that's where she's from.
>>20941706I usually love chunky eyebrows but I hate the strange blob design they used here. They don't look like eyebrows at all, they just look like shit and don't look like they'd be interesting to watch or animate, unless they deform significantly (which would kind of defeat the point)
>>20948426They move fine here, although there aren't any angry faces.
>>20938744Turn A is after G-Reco by 6000 years.
>>20948799Tomino said it's the other way around, but then Bandai/Sunrise said it's the other way around.
>>20942078lol>>20942066Maybe it will be like if Sayla was more like her brother.
>>20948809Bandai owns the franchise so their word is final imo. They dictate what series get made, so they can place new ones anywhere they want into the narrative.
>>20948984I don't get what's wrong with Gundarmored Core.
>>20932397The way the lines are drawn reminds me of G-RecoI hope Witch will look good as that
>>20948994How is this anything like armored core aside from 1(one) gundam design?
>>20949096The company/industrial wars perhaps
Waiting for sex bot to arrive
>>20949096The companies being the ones that have control of the world/space. Although to be fair that's just cyberpunk stuff.
Apparently it’s a warnable offense to be too ironic when posting here, so I’ll just say this outright: who are these character and mech designs meant to appeal to exactly? Are young Japanese boys really into these weird androgynous looks?>inb4 Gundam wuz always gay broYeah, but this series and these designs seem to be next level, at least at first glance.
>>20951315I'll remind you that Sunrise explicitly said that 00 was aimed at girls and sci-fi nuts: https://www.animenewsnetwork.com/news/2007-06-14/gundam-00's-4-main-characters-4-gundam-units-revealed/2
>>20951315>mech designs meant to appeal to exactly?let's go over them>aerialseems to have that red glowy shit that the makes the normie audience instantly cum, like on the unicorn series or nuverka>dilanzagyobu can do normal proportions, but this seems to be out there for those guys who really liked that stubby roundass gusion and its rodi henchmen>pharactfrom a newer designer, seems to appeal to fans of very atypical gundam designs (specifically i can see the legs and shoulders calling back to the byarlant, and the head kind of being an evolution of the Mark. V's head)>michaelismore or less seems to be a combination of the vagan design philosophy and some motifs from the eldora, which gained some fans during re:rise's broadcast
>>20951413Shut up nerd.
>>20951413Yeah this is my point, the mech designs seem extremely derivative of IBO, with extra AGE thrown in for good measure. I thought neither of those series did that great, so why are they doubling down on them?
>>20951513IBO did pretty well, I’m not sure where you got the impression that it didn’t.I don’t see any AGE influence at all, the Michaelismjust looks like a 30MM kit taken over by Alus
>>20946284Cackling at this blob being called a vixen. Could be kino!
>>20944388Go back to discord
>>20942359It's Sunrise, and given with Cross Ange, that's probably not going to be the case.
>>20944388Go back to r-e-d-d-i-t
>>20942305Do you have the one for mirione?
